Dance Without Surrender… Dream Without Borders
Carol Marie Webster, PhD, – artist| activist| scholar: Situated at convergences of arts, health, healing, and activism, I work at intersections of gender, religion, and race/ethnicity. My practice focuses on the performance and performative articulations of the African Diaspora/Black Atlantic body, with primary interest in vulnerable bodies, examining expressions of identity and belonging and the influence of cultural and social practices on the health and well-being of individuals, communities, and societies. I am currently a Visiting Scholar at the Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life (IRCPL)/Department of Religion at Columbia University in the City of New York.
Dance Without Surrender points to the cultivation of a life practice with Dance at the center, a mode of being as well as an avenue for artistic, spiritual, political, and cultural articulation.
The tag line Dream Without Borders invites creative cultivation of and engagement in practices of peace and the building of a better world.
